Code for America is now accepting applications for its 2013 fellowship.
If you’re a developer, designer, researcher, or entrepreneur who wants to make a difference, this is your opportunity to build a new generation of Gov 2.0 apps to make city governments work better. CfA fellows get a crash course in how cities work, mentorship and networking with the top names in tech and government, and a platform to launch companies and careers that will bring long-term innovation to the public sector. They also get a living-wage stipend, travel expenses, and healthcare for the year. Most of all, they get the chance to be heroes.
Applications are due March 18, 2012 for the Spring cycle, and July 29, 2012 for the Fall cycle. Anyone not selected during the Spring Cycle will be notified and rolled into the Fall decision process. Apply now using the form on the right.
If you’re chosen, you’ll need to be available full-time in the San Francisco Bay Area starting in January 2013 through November 2013. As a startup, Code for America cannot at this time sponsor work visas for international applicants. Non-US citizens with the necessary paperwork to participate in the year-long fellowship are welcome to apply.
If you have any questions about either the fellowship or the application, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
